World Water Day: Water Privatization In The U.S.

To mark World Water Day 2005, Amy Goodman looks at the issue of water privatization in U.S. cities.

"The United Nations says more than 1.1 billion people around the world lack safe water and 2.4 billion have no access to sanitation - leading to over 3 million deaths every year. Almost one fifth of all children - lack even the bare minimum of safe water they need to live.

Water issues extend to indigenous people's rights, global warming and boundary issues. Today, we focus on the issue of water privatization in Detroit and Stockton, California."
